Coming soon: the 18th-annual Northwest Shootout

Here is some information that was sent in today about the upcoming Northwest Shootout in Portland. The Washington rosters have yet to be finalized.

The annual Northwest Shootout games between the top Oregon and Washington graduating girls and boys from this winter’s basketball season will take place Saturday night, April 2, at the Chiles Center in Portland.

Playing for the Oregon Boys team will be Jack Grodahl and Jorden Akewenuki of Jesuit, Austin Kuemper and Miles Gatewood of Westview, Gavin Hoffman of Lincoln, David Carr of Central Catholic, Seth Gearhardt of Wilsonville, Andy Avgi of Woodburn, Andrew Andrews of Benson, and Dominique Ditlefsen of Sunset.

This year’s signature sponsor of the Northwest Shootout is Dick’s Sporting Goods. Presenting sponsors are Nike and WH Cress Company. Supporting Sponsors are Shirts and Skins, Specht Properties, and Unitus Community Credit Union.

In addition to being a competitive showcase of talent, the Northwest Shootout is for a

good cause. Proceeds from the event benefit the Multnomah Athletic Foundation’s

grants and scholarship funding for the ongoing support of athletes and youth athletics throughout the Portland area. Every year the foundation is a substantial supporter of youth programs and aspiring athletes who may otherwise not get a chance to participate in sports.

Well known players who participated in the Shootout during their senior prep seasons include: Terrance Williams, Adam Morrison, Dan Dickau, Luke Jackson, Derek Ravio, Michael Doleac, Michael Dunleavy, Aaron Miles, Maarty Leunen, Brian Scalabrine, Blake Stepp, Fred Jones, Josh Tarver, Salim Stoudamire, Aaarika Hughes, Jill Noe, Stacey Clinesmith, Sheila Lambert, Lauren Greif, Sheila Lambert, Chantelle Anderson, Jillian Harman, JJ Hones, Kara Braxton, Shaquala Williams and many others.

The girls game will begin at 4 p.m. and the boys game at 6 p.m. in University of Portland’s Chiles Center. Tickets for both games ($10 for general admission

and $5 for students) can be purchased at all TicketMaster outlets or at the door.
